Project Description

The initial state:

  • Data on the results and state of production is unreliable
  • Reporting is generated manually and submitted for review with delays
  • Information on key performance indicators is collected and entered manually
  • No historical production data
  • There are no modern sensors and process control systems
  • Downtime for non-technical reasons
  • Losses of raw materials and products
  • Planning product shipment, production and raw materials delivery are labour-intensive

Target condition:

  • Production planning and management functions are carried out based on up-to-date, reliable data on all assets
  • Automatic report generation for any period
  • <1 hour response time to production incidents, reduced downtime on all assets
  • >80% of production data is reliable
  • Reduced losses of raw materials and products at all assets
  • 5-8% increase in oil and gas production
  • >70% of production and processing are controlled automatically at all assets
  • A single platform integrates all information about assets


  • Installation of digital instrumentation and sensors, incl. multiphase flow meters
  • Installation of automated workplaces and training of personnel to work with them
  • Implementation of automatic process control systems in processing critical equipment and parts of technological processes
  • Installation of data transmission cable lines and deployment of secure wireless data transmission systems, sensors and SCADA at the most promising wells
  • Implementation of solutions at the level of MES systems in oil production and refining (operational management, electronic journal, material balance, energy control, laboratory information system, passport of technological objects)
  • Implementation of a unified data platform
  • Reengineering of production and business processes, implementation of new operating regulations

The winners of the Project of the Year 2023 competition are IT leaders from India, Malaysia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Iraq and Brazil. 

The beginning of the year was marked by a flurry of activity by various legislators to deal with artificial intelligence. The New York Times filed a lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft, and the UAE created an AI council to accelerate the adoption of AI systems in critical sectors of the economy.

What should a business solution be, so that it is chosen by young people, but at the same time not rejected by older professionals? Maybe beauty will save the peace in the team, because everyone wants to work in an application that looks beautiful? It is true, but User Interface (UI) is good when it is based on User Experience (UX). If harmony between UI and UX is achieved, the product will be both beautiful and user-friendly.

Choosing between cross-platform development and native development for iOS and Android is not just a technical decision, it is a strategy that can determine the future of your mobile product.
